WHAT ARE YOU DOING SATURDAY NIGHT?
This Saturday, February 28th, is National Open That Bottle Night, encouraging all wine fanatics to dig deep into their cellars and pull out that bottle you've been holding onto for one special occasion or another. These folks are saying, "now is the time."
To find out more about the night, visit http://openthatbottlenight.com. You can read about stories of bottles opened last year from people all over, or contribute your own story. Wilson Daniels, importer and broker for such wines as Castello di Volpaia, Tardieu-Laurent, Silverado and Gundlach-Bundschu is hosting Open That Bottle Night on Twitter Taste Live, along with Vinquire and my good friend Thea Dwelle (of Luscious Lushes). Should be a great night all around. I've been eyeing either one of my 1997 St. Clement Orropas or maybe the Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 1997. Let me know what you would do, and email us your stories, or post them at Open That Bottle Night.
